Metatarsal Pain: Consider Bike Shoes with Embedded Cleat

     Had a patient today with chronic bilateral metatarsal pain. As we work through the diagnosis, I suggested to get bike shoes with embedded cleats to wear at least 4 hours per day to decrease the motion across the sore areas. I find thinking about making changes in the biomechanics of the patient can usually make significant improvements. This is even true when you have the patient use those changes for parts of each day.
